Joe_F Lyr Req: Uncle Eph's Got the Coon (22) Lyr Add: UNCLE REUBEN GOT A COON 22 Mar 03


Possibly related, tho very different after the first stanza:

"UNCLE REUBEN GOT A COON"
on "Tom Glazer, Richard Dyer-Bennett Sing Olden Ballads"

REFRAIN:
Uncle Reuben got a coon, done gone, chck-a-chck,
Done gone, chck-a-chck, done gone, chck-a-chck,
Uncle Reuben got a coon, done gone, chck-a-chck,
And left me here behind.

Possum on the simmon tree, raccoon on the ground,
Possum say "Mr Raccoon, won't you shake one simmon down.

If you love me, Liza Jane, put your hand in mine.
You won't lack for no corn bread as long as the sun do shine.
